Edition 1996
99' - 1995 - Drama, Comedy, Romance - Dialogue: English
Director: Nigel Finch Composer: Michael Kamen With: Guillermo Diaz, Frederick Weller, Brendan Corbalis
It's summer 1969 in New York City. Matty Dean, young, gay and full of dreams heads downtown. It's the time of the Vietnam War and the Apollo Moon Walk; homosexuality is still illegal. It's also the summer of love - but not if you're gay. Stonewall, the wild haunt of fabulous diva drag queens, is the hangout of young street queen, LaMiranda. Matty just happens to turn up on a night the cops are on a routine harassment spree, and LaMiranda gets defiant. At a gay campaign group, Matty meets Ethan who is confident and determined to fight the system from within. Caught between two worlds - Ethan, who is aiming for social acceptance, and the disreputable warmth of LaMiranda and the Stonewall gang - Matty must choose.
